Situation - Treskelly Farmhouse lies about 0.5 miles south of Polbathic Village and occupies a very private yet accessible south facing position. The village of Polbathic stands on a tributary of the River Lynher and has a pub and village hall. The nearby village of St Germans has sought after village facilities including a main line railway station (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours), providing a very useful commuting link, community shop, primary school, doctors' surgery, church, public house and a sailing club.
 
St Germans is also home to the beautiful Port Eliot Estate with its fascinating parkland gardens and the house is now open to the public. A wide range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities are available at Saltash including a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts.
 
St Mellion International Golf Resort lies approximately 13 miles distant and the city of Plymouth lies within a relatively short commute and has an excellent shopping centre which is adjacent to the historic and beautiful waterfront areas of the Barbican and Hoe. Plymouth also has a ferry port with regular services to France and Northern Spain.
 
The wide expanses and beaches of Whitsand and Looe Bay are only a short drive away.

Description - This traditional Cornish farm house was constructed in 1903 over two levels, situated in an elevated position with a due southerly aspect and enjoys spectacular far reaching views over the rolling green Cornish countryside. Today Treskelly Farmhouse is in need of refurbishment but would create a significant family home. To the rear of the property is a sizable two storey traditional agricultural building with a multitude of potential uses, subject to the necessary consents.
 
The house is located adjacent to a range of traditional barns that will be shortly sold by our clients for conversion.

Accommodation - The house was inhabited until recently and needs updating throughout. It enjoys all the proportions of a grand farmhouse of the turn of the century, with high ceilings and large and airy rooms, original features and character aplenty.
 
On the ground floor the accommodation includes: sitting room, drawing room, breakfast room, kitchen and utility. On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms and a family bathroom.
 
The accommodation extends to almost 3,000 square feet, in addition to a further 3,000 square feet of detached two storey barn, located to the north of the main house.

Garden & Grounds - The house sits neatly in its own gardens, The curtilage of the property extends to almost one acre and, like the house, offers a wealth of potential and today has a blank canvas to create spectacular and private grounds. (see attached plan)
 
A number of barns have recently been demolished in the centre of the rear garden area and their asbestos roofs removed off the property.
 
A further, around half an acre, of amenity land in front of the farmhouse, which will be available by separate negotiation, following completion of the transaction. Please enquire for further information.
